Knowledge base doc (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3825) says  “Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard provides system-level support for digital camera RAW formats.” so I assume a system update includes Digital Camera RAW Combatibility updates.


Before I updated from 10.6.6 to 10.6.8, SU showed I needed Dig Cam RAW Com update 3.7 which I didn’t do.  After the update to 10.6.8, I needed 3.12 so v3.7 through 3.11 must have been included in the OS X update.  Before I got around to doing 3.12, I found SU showed 3.13; I assume each update includes the past ones as well.


My cameras, Samsung Pro 815s, predate the updates.


I continue to do the updates thnking there might be some unmentioned secuirity issues included in the update that are not mentioned, but -- really -- is it necessary to keep doing these particular updates?


Do folks continue to do these ad infinitum as new cameras are added?


Should I eventually purchase different cameras, could I then find the relevant update and just install it?
